Interesting quote from Honda on the selection of the transmission:

“We produced just 6MT (six-speed manual transmission) only for Type R because the engine achieves 400Nm and 320PS,” explained Honda powertrain project leader, Yuji Matsumochi.
“The Type R being a lightweight front-wheel drive means there is a need for lightweight powertrain systems. So the engine has big power and relatively heavy weight, so the transmission needed to be lightweight.
“If we tried to have an automatic transmission (option) or DCT for over 400Nm, then the powertrain would be very heavy weight, which would mean additional front weight, and upset the weight balance.

Pretty much, the latest fad transmissions are heavy and have poor durability.
Good to see the manuals are returning!
Similarly, the i30N from Hyundai is only available in proper manual, with three pedals.
